What is this?

In this interdisciplinary meetup we want to explore stories at the intersections of technology. Technology is all around us and changing rapidly. It influences our social and private life, politics and society. Equally, technology is influenced by the people who build it and their mindsets and biases. Which challenges and opportunities do we see?

Sometimes it can feel overwhelming and stressful to survive in this field. Especially as a underrepresented or/and marginalized person. This meetup attempts to be a platform for exchange and support.

First we will get some input: 2-3 shorter talks of 5-10 minutes. After the talks we will have breakout sessions where attendees can discuss their own topics in smaller groups. Like an open space or an unconf.
